Retreat Classes

$70.00 per person, per class

Teresa Miller of Teresa's Primitive Treasures - 'Chalk Paint Class'
Create a sewing box using an 8 inch hexagon shaped paper mach box.
We will be painting with chalk paint which is a nice chalky feeling paint
and distresses very well for a nice time worn look. The first class will be
painting the box and box lid. The 2nd class will be sanding and attaching
the graphic to the lid. The 3rd class will be antiquing/staining the sewing box!
There will be 3 different color paints to choose from.

Beth Seal of Summer House Stitche Workes - The beauty of the Shenandoah Valley inspired this sweet, little needlecase.  Stitched on 32 count Nocturne linen from Picture This Plus, the autumn harvest motifs are stitched with DMC floss. During the two hour class you will learn the Palestrina Knot to combine the interior linen of Country French Cafe Mocha from Wichelt and the exterior linen.  It is a fun stitch and lends a distinctive look to the finished piece.  The interior also features a wool felt page for storing your needles and twisted thread ties for closure.  You will go home with a new stitch in your arsenal and the finished needlebook, the perfect souvenir of your time spent in this Fruitful Valley.  Prestitching required to finish in class.

Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm - 'Beginner Punch Needle Class'; scissor fob finishing

Janice Note of Noteworthy Needle - Reversible Waxer Tiny Tote
to house a cornucopia shaped waxer.  When completed, this tiny tote
with gussets will be completely reversible.  Two totes in one!
Fabric is 32 count Flax linen, DMC floss in five autumnal colors.
Beth has given permission to use her border motif and has matched
the color palette to compliment the other pieces.
